Dogs are good for the soul


Far, far removed from the days when her image as a machine gun-toting revolutionary captivated a nation, Patricia Hearst Shaw was in more genteel surroundings Monday. She was tending to Diva at Madison Square Garden, petting her soft head on dogdom’s biggest day. Her prize, with a champion’s name of Shann’s Legally Blonde, earned a red ribbon as Best of Opposite Sex — a male dog won the breed, and hers was judged the top female. Shaw said the ribbon would probably decorate one of the swords that her husband collects. Photo: Seth Wenig / AP
